This upscale boutique hotel perfectly blends modern sensibilities with a Western touch, tempting outdoor enthusiasts to hit the snooze button from their feather beds or curl up in a deep leather couch in front of the fireplace. The 20 rooms and seven condos (two- or three-bedroom) on Gore Creek feel like home away from home thanks to spacious living areas and large bathrooms. Soak in one of the deep bathtubs or in one the two outdoor hot tubs. Yoga, Pilates, and other
fitness classes in the 18,000-square-foot Vail Athletic Club at the Vitality Center are free to guests, as is a stocked breakfast buffet that includes the hotel's delicious homemade granola at Terra Bistro. Guests can park for free in the public lot across the street and walk into town in just a few minutes.
